Leyla McCalla finds inspiration from a variety of sources, whether it is her Haitian heritage, living in New Orleans or dancing at Cajun Mardi Gras. Leyla, a multi-instrumentalist, is a cellist and singer whose distinctive sound is impossible to replicate. “The Capitalist Blues” is comprised of songs that reflect the experience living in a capitalist society, where we are always expected to do more, be more, and have more. It features a stellar cast of Louisiana and Haitian musicians.
